Harold Leslie McGuire III 1970 ~ 2006 Les McGuire, loving husband, father, son, brother, and friend, was called home by his Heavenly Father June 8, 2006, to use his many gifts and talents to embark on a new and heavenly mission. Les loved his mortal life and lived it to the fullest.
He was born December 7, 1970 to Harold Leslie II (Bud) and Barbara McGuire in Provo, Utah. He enjoyed a happy family life with his parents and younger brother, Eric, and was raised to love the outdoors through many campouts and excursions. Les formed cherished friendships while growing up in Utah, Texas, and Colorado and continued to love the people he met while representing The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Kobe, Japan Mission. Les dedicated himself to mastering the Japanese language-both spoken and written-and later graduated cum laude from Brigham Young University with a degree in Japanese. Les continued his studies by completing a Masters of Business Administration degree also at BYU. His education, however, did not cease with his diplomas-rather he continually expanded his knowledge of principles and truth through intense reading and personal study in his many areas of interest, including economics, religion, history, and philosophy.
Les found particular inspiration and truth in the writings and lives of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America and was dedicated to promoting the cause of freedom. During his BYU days Les met the love of his life, Kristina Boyce, and they became forever united in the Manti Temple on January 14, 1995. Les and Tina welcomed a beautiful daughter, Stephanie Renee, into their home July 21, 1997. Lindsey Ann arrived to sweeten their lives on September 30, 1999, and Justin H.L. brought joy into their eternal family May 25, 2003. Tina and the children now await the arrival of another cherished boy, due in August. Les and his family are forever!
Cars, basketball, movies, traveling, and sports were some of Les' favorite aspects of mortal life-however, what he clearly valued most were the people in his life, whose influence and love will remain a part of him throughout his eternal journey. Les truly valued his many friends and associates and appreciated each of their unique gifts and talents.
Les was privileged in his business endeavors to be united with like-minded individuals whom he admired and respected. Beginning with Ray Hooper, beloved friend and business partner-with whom he left this life-along with Garrett Gunderson, Mike Isom and Wade Sleater, Les formed the company Engenuity to promote the principles of prosperity economics. The passion and excitement generated by true principles taught and applied in countless people's lives sparked the Producer Revolution-a movement designed to empower all people to reach their full potential by creating value in the lives of others.
Les boldly shared his talents for speaking and writing and was dedicated to inspiring all people to learn to use their own unique abilities to create value in the world. He spread the message of individual responsibility and promoted the principles of prosperity with a passion that will never be forgotten. Thousands of individuals attending his seminars have seen transformation in their lives by simply opening their minds and applying the principles Les so eloquently taught. Les reached countless others through his writings published in various magazines and journals and sent words of wisdom over the air waves as the voice of Producer Revolution radio and as a frequent guest on Rick Koerber's Free Capitalist radio.
Les is a voice that will be remembered as those who caught and shared his vision now fearlessly carry it forward. Les is part of a wonderful extended family with treasured grandparents, whom he now joins in the spirit realm, as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins who brought kinship and happiness to his childhood and continued to show their love and support. Les especially valued his relationship with his cousins, Darron Miller, who shares his vision and continued to practice and promote the principles Les espoused.
Les will be sorely missed by his parents, brother and sister-in-law, as well as Tina's parents, brother and sister-in-law, and extended family who continue care and comfort.
A special thank you is extended to the dear friends and family who have so tenderly comforted, lifted, and borne up those whose hands hang down at this time. Les is forever loved by his eternal family, who will continue to honor him as husband and father as he now begins to fulfill his role beyond this earth. We promise to strive each day to be worthy to meet with you again in a glorious day to come.
